The Fastest 2 Piece ever!

Hello there again!  

Below is a quick 2 piece I created from a paneled ITY knit from Fabric Mart Fabrics.  I absolutely fell in love with fabric but was not sure exactly what I would do with it.  Since I was running short on creative time, I opted to create a crop top and simple pencil skirt.  If you are wanting a look similar to this, the easiest route would be to use M6886 and separate the top from the bottom.  

Happy Sewing!

Mesh Is The New Tulle!

Top of the morning!!

One one of many sales on Fabric Mart Fabrics, I was able to score 10 yards of multicolored mesh at a whopping $1.99 per yard.  I took 6 yards of this mesh and created a mini skirt, perfect for my vacation that is approaching.  I gathered a total of 216 inches!!!!  I doubled the fabric because it is after all... mesh!  My top is a very simple V8815 crop which is my go to for crop shirts. I paired this with a simply gold chain and bracelet, with Alexander McQueen Sandals. 

I hope you like! 

Happy Sewing!

Sew Red - Vogue 9075

For the first time this year, the weather consistently rose above 60 degrees.  The long awaited Spring has arrived and haven't failed me yet (fingers crossed).








Today's dressy jumpsuit is courtesy Vogue Pattern 9075 found (HERE).   The Fabric is a "hot tamale poly/twill suiting from Fabric Mart Fabrics found (HERE),  Once I saw the color, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it!


This is one of the simplest patterns I've sewn in a while.  In under 3 hours, I had a completed garment.  Instead of lining this top, I opted to create a facing for the center front, and center back pieces, using the original pattern piece.  


Once attached, The pattern piece and the facing (both with finished edges) were pressed towards the facing, under stitched, clipped in the curve.



I repeated this step for the (2) center back pieces.


From here, all other steps should be according to the manufacturer's instruction.  I will be completely honest, this pattern is so simple, I did not read the instructions at all!  I assembled the pants, put the pockets on, sewn my pleats (which I laid flat instead of towards the center front), a double hem on the sleeves and pants, added the a zipper and that was IT!  You cannot construct a jumpsuit any simpler!.


  And there you have it!  I can't wait to wear this over the spring/summer. 






Happy Sewing!
